Tarot Cards 2

Pentacles surprised me the most.  I remember that at that moment I thought that they had a very strange suit of Diamonds. Other suits also matched: Swords are Clubs, Wands are Spades, and Cups are Hearts. Also, there were many more strange cards without suits at all. We then removed the "unnecessary" cards from the deck and played cards that remained in Durak... until we bought ordinary cards. Unfortunately, I did not preserve this very first deck of Tarot cards.

Thank you, Faye! I remember now what happened then. Should I write "remembered"?

Good job agai, Oleks!

Pentacles surprised me the most. I remember that at that moment, (comma needed) I thought that (recommendation) they had a very strange suit of Diamonds. Other suits also matched (well): Swords are were Clubs, Wands are were Spades, and Cups are were Hearts. Also, there were many more strange cards without (any) suits at all. We then removed the "unnecessary" cards from the deck and played with the remaining cards that remained in Durak... until we bought ordinary cards. Unfortunately, I did not preserve this (my) very first deck of Tarot cards.

Hey Oleks,

Well done for getting the spelling 'unnecessary' correct! It can be a confusing word to get right!

There were a couple of words that you pronounced which I just felt could have been more fluent and enunciated better:

- Sword - you needed to pronounce the 'o' more clearly

- Ordinary - you broke this up by syllable rather than just saying it as one word

Thanks, Becky =)

Hi Oleks!

This is all new to me haha! Did you find the (Tarot) card game easy to master out of interest? There are some card games I've been taught that are so difficult to understand that I don't really enjoy playing them.

The others have done a great job of evaluating your text and audio. I don't really have anything else to add. I do think you should continue to work on improving your pronunciation of the "r" sound in English. Listen to me a few times

"removed "

"very"

Hi Ed! Thank you for your comment and audio! We adapted the Tarot Cards to play Durak. This game we all knew well, so it was easy.
